    Our club auctions are a popular social day for members and a great way for us to be able to buy that special item missing from our collection. This also raises much needed club funds in order for us to keep running! We hold two auctions a year usually in April and October - depending on stock availability.

    We are always looking for collections or items to sell from both the public and club members. With keen collectors in our club, there is always friendly competition for that rare item. Our Auctions are professionally run and fully licenced. Our committee will appraise your items, catalogue, photograph and pack your items and provide you with a copy of all paperwork to protect all parties. 

    Our vendor fees are very competitive so if you have items to sell please get in touch with our club secretary for a chat. Email us at or contact us via this website.
